Hey everyone. I was just wondering, how many facilities did you apply at before receiving a job offer that you accepted? Did most of you focus mainly on new grad training positions, or did you also apply for regular positions that did not provide a formal orientation/preceptorship as the training positions do?

I applied at two, besides my current facility that i have worked for 8 years. I continued to work as a LPN in a per-diem position until i finished school. I could have taken any of them, all three made offers.
I have gotten 9 weeks of orientation to the RN position at my old hospital, but i dont really feel it is long enough. But then ive been told that noone really feels comfortable until they are out there doing it on their own for a while anyway.
